Team Makers covered the $550,000 cost for the locker room renovation inside the Fargodome. They will be paid back through private donations.
The renovation added space for 10 new locker stalls, which now brings the total number of player lockers to 115. The lockers were provided by Wenger.
Advent, the same company that branded and did the signage for the Sanford Health Athletic Complex, designed the new locker room.
“It’s incredible. It’s really special to come in here and have all this new stuff and it gets the guys excited for the new season we have coming up.” – Junior Wide Receiver, Darrius Shepherd
“You come in here and everything is brighter, everything seems bigger. We’re landlocked for space, but everything seems bigger, everything is state-of-the-art.” – Head Coach, Chris Klieman
“I think it will definitely have an impact on recruiting, just in bringing them in here. It lets recruits know people in the program care about us and take care of us, and give us nice things like this beautiful locker room.” – Senior Safety, Tre Dempsey
“The stuff we talk about, the stuff that’s been talked about in here is still up on the walls. The conference championships, the national championships, academic All-Americans–the tradition stuff that has been around for a long time–all that is here and really shown off.” – Junior Quarterback, Easton Stick
